USUN Ambassador Amid Cameroon, Honduras & SG Elex Qs Fields Congratulations Press Banned

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Periscope
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - CJR - PFT

UN GATE, March 31 – In the United Nations from which Secretary General Antonio Guterres has banned Inner City Press 1002 days for asking about his complicity in the killing of civilians in Cameroon, poisoning them in Haiti with cholera and COVID in South Sudan, and their mass imprisonment by China in Xinjiang, on the morning of March 31 Inner City Press wrote to the US Mission to the UN, at its address in the UN Blue Book and other addresses,including the form on its website, as UN Security Council president, to ask questions including about Cameroon and Honduras, UN democracy and censorship:

" 1) why has the US not sought to get a UNSC meeting about the continued killing, largely of Anglophones, in Cameroon, even an AOB? What is the Ambassador's thinking? 

2) Why did the Ambassador not, during this month, circulate any of the now six letters and C.V. of candidates to run against SG Guterres, including mine? Given that there is no written requirement of member state support, why have they not been circulated? And will USUN act to ensure that US-based Inner City Press can return as a UN resident correspondent, as it was for ten years before SG Guterres? See, e.g., this.

 3) What is the USUN / State Department response to yesterday's SDNY sentencing of Honduras' president's brother to life plus 30 years for narco-trafficking implicating the president JOH?  Please confirm receipt, and here's hoping that at least the principles of the US First Amendment will be advanced by USUN and the Ambassador and Inner City Press restored to access to UN briefings."

  No answer - but Ambassador Linda Thomas - Greenfield took five questions, three of which were laden with congratulations. No questions on anything in Africa, nor about the UNSG elections process. We will report any response - but at what point does this become collusion?

 Back on March 1 the Ambassador, propounding Gumbo Diplomacy, described a March 11 event on hunger focused on Yemen and Ethiopia. Inner City Press live tweeted, including the Program of Work here: South Sudan March 3, Syria 4, 15, etc, Yemen 16, UNAMA 23, Libya 24, DR Congo March 30. No #Cameroon, much less Honduras. No footnotes

We'll have more on this.
